Beit Ummar Women's Project


Beit Ummar is a Muslim village halfway between Bethlehem and Hebron, south of Jerusalem in the southern West Bank (Palestine). The village has been losing land, confiscated by the nearby Israeli settlements in the Gush Etzion area.

The women of the village have organised to better their lives though economic development projects, especially maintaining the traditional embroidery of the region. 

Village life is very traditional so the women are mostly working to raise children and maintain the home.

However when the children are off to school, or fast asleep, and husbands are off at work, or smoking their water pipes and drinking coffee with male friends, the women pull out their embroidery projects and continue their work.
